Thanks for the confirmation that this arises on my end :( darn.

All I can think of ATM moment to locate files that this is happening with 
is the find command that I stated earlier. Something like find 
/usr/local/ -type f -name \*\$\*, from csh of course. But as to where this 
is happening or how its happening on my two systems must be residing in a 
upgrade from an old ports collection to a more recent update. Ill grab a 
fresh new copy of the ports tree and see if this resolves the issue and 
report back with any new things I find or a final resolve.

Thanks Gerald.
